Second term will be neglected when h=3cm not 3meter for length 20 meter.

How it will be 3m?

Please explain clearly with the completed formula.

l = 20 m.

H2 = 2l,

H2 = 2*20,

H2 = 40.

And;

H = 6.32 or 6.33,

√40 = 6.32.

H2 = 2l,

H2 = 2*20,

H2 = 40.

And;

H = 6.32 or 6.33,

√40 = 6.32.

For slope (M) up to 20%.

Slope correction(Sc) = h^2/(2l).

Here d = 20m,

M = h/d,

0.2 = h/20.

H = 0.2 * 20 = 4m.

Here the nearest one is 3m.

So 3m is the appropriate answer.

The second term can be negleted only if the slopes flatter than 1 in 25..

That means 4%.

i.e, 4% of 20m = 0.8(4/5) ie, H shouldn't higher than 0.8m.

So option A is right.

The error can be accepted upto 10%. thus, the second term divided by the correlational factor equal 0.1.

Assuming the first term is x and the second term is y. Then y/x+y=0.1==> x+y/x=10 with y not zero==>1+x/y=9==>y=9. solve it u will get l=3.

The answer should be A. 1/2m.

With ref of Punmia : the second term in slope correction shall be neglected for slopes flatter than about 1 in 25 (i.e slope should be lesser than 0.04).

The slope is Vertical distance/Horizontal distance.

.

Here Vertical distance is h and the horizondal distance is √((L)^2 - (h)^2).

L = 20 given in the problem. We need to find, for which value of h the slope will be less than 0.04.

Sub h = 0.5, we get slope = 0.025;

Sub h = 1, we get slope = 0.050;

Sub h = 2, we get slope = 0.100;

Sub h = 3, we get slope = 0.150;

Therefore Option A (h=0.5m) is the correct answer.
